Professional Wine Reviews for Celler Vall Llach Priorat Embruix

Rated 88 by Robert Parker
The 2011 Embruix de Vall Llach is a blend of Carinena (28%), Garnacha (23%), Merlot (17%), Cabernet Sauvignon (18%) and Syrah(14%) and feels surprisingly fresher than the rest of the reds despite 2011 being a much warmer vintage than 2010, with a serious, dark nose of shoe polish, peat, nutmeg and ripe dark plums with some chemical character (diesel? Mineral?) and hints of flowers, Mediterranean herbs and spices. The palate is full-bodied, with ripe, balsamic flavors and plenty of tannin. The younger sibling is already a big wine. Drink 2014-2018.

Additional Information on Celler Vall Llach Priorat Embruix

Winery: Celler Vall Llach

Region: Cataluna

With sixty thousand hectares of prime land under vine, and over two hundred bodegas and wineries operating there, the Spanish region of Catalunya is a vitally important centre for Spanish wine production and viticulture. It seems this has been the case for several thousand years, and recent archaeological findings have proven that Catalunya has a wine history which pre-dates Roman Spain by a considerable margin, making it one of the oldest wine regions in the world. Catalan wines today are dominated by the ever popular sparkling Cava wines, made in the methode champenois, and drank across the globe as a fine replacement for the more expensive Champagne wines. However, the excellent climatic conditions and terroir of Catalunya means that the bodegas of the region can also produce excellent still red and white wines, made from the wide range of grape varietals which thrive there.

Country: Spain

From the deep and intense Rioja wines, or the dry and refreshing Ruedas, from Tempranillos to Verdejos, the range and quality of Spanish wines is always going to impress and fascinate. With several thousand years of traditions and expertise leading the way, Spanish wineries are currently producing some of the most flavorful and interesting wines to come out of Europe, striving to overcome the reputation problems the country suffered in the mid to late twentieth century. Despite being one of the largest producers of wine in the world, with billions of bottles being filled each year, Spanish wine producers are more interested in quality over quantity than ever before. The results of this are some truly world class wines rivaling even the finest produce of France in regards to balance, character and flavor, gaining new fans and enthusiasts every day.
